Only Kingsley isn't like the other schools she's been to. The students are different. But, then again, so is she. After meeting Kiran Kendrick, the mysterious boy who seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality.

Want a rubbish teenage romance /Harry Potter take off? Absolute rubbish!!!

I would never write a review without listening to/reading the whole book, so made myself do it while gardening. Dire- poor grammar, childish use of multiple adjectives, obsession appearance, hair and designer products, so much repeated narrative you can predict the next words- that it “made my blood boil.” Think it would give JK Rowling a good laugh or reason to start a lawsuit.
Two good things about the audiobook were- I got it for free and the story was so repetitive, if I got to the wrong part after a break, it didn’t matter!The worse thing about it is I can’t give it no stars.

Needs SERIOUS editing.

The premise is fine, it could be good, but sadly isn’t. Trying to be twilight in a Harry Potter setting and failing to hit either mark at all.

I was made uncomfortable by the misogyny of the prose - idiot girl needs men to save her continuously, none of whom deign to offer her any explanation as to why. There is a lack of emotional depth to any of the characters, and the lead male is completely unlikable, treating the lead female extraordinarily badly throughout. I realise this is a children’s book, but this is not a healthy model of relationships to be presenting to anyone.

A personal issue: There are some phrases that cropped up repeatedly that must be American vernacular, which I found grating:
‘On accident’ and ‘could care less’.

None of this has made me eager to listen to the next book, which is disappointing as I am a committed HP fan and enjoyed Twilight too.

Very good!

I purchased this book because it was described as a cross between Harry Potter and Twilight, two of my favorite things! While not as life changing as either of the above mentioned, still very good and I will continue on to book two.

unlikeable characters

I really liked the world and the plot of this story but both the heroine and the love interest were so annoying! I wanted to throttle them both, yet I listened to the whole book waiting for it to get better because I liked the plot.
She willfully ignores whats going on around her and to her. She has magic - but wont aknowledge it despite destroying 3 schools? Then people are answering her thoughts and she just brushes it off. Then she finally tells someone about it, and it feels like an after thought, and neither of them really react.
Also, she never asks 'why'. That might be what bothers me most. Any normal person would question things. Especially once she knows that everyone around her knows what's going on and she's still in the dark. As if any orphan wouldn't at least ask who their parents are to the person that knows. Or why she keeps blowing stuff up!!!
I think this characters lack of questions is an artefact of the authors attempt to keep the reader in suspense, but it's lazy. In a world of magic it's super easy to explain almost anything, like a spell to limit her curiosity or something. Or at least have the other characters avoid her questions.
